Xihui Park in WuxiThe Mountain Hui is 329 meters high. There are nine peaks on the mountain. Because the mountain resembles the nine dragons, Mt. Hui also is called Mountain of Nine Dragons. It has the fame of "The First Mountain in South China". Mt. Hui is also famous for its clear and sweet spring pools. It is said that there are over 10 spring pools on the mountain. "Nine dragons and thirteen spring pools" on the Mt. Hui have been regarded highly by the people since long time ago. The mountain is also rich with scenic spots and historical sites. Among them the most famous are Chunshen Ravine, Huishan Temple, and Pleasure Garden. Huishan Temple was constructed in the first years of Northern and Southern Dynasty. The ancient temple is the oldest temple in Wuxi City.

It is recorded that Emperor Kangxi and Emperor Qianlong in Qing Dynasty once came to the Xihui Park while they were traveling in south China. Emperor Qianlong liked the view in Pleasure Garden so much that he later ordered people to construct a similar garden in Summer Palace named Garden of Harmonious Interests so that he could enjoy it in Beijing.
